Michael Doran presenting. This presentation will cover the copyright issues and pitfalls that arise when a locally created software application is being considered for release under an open-source license. It will be based on the knowledge and experience gained shepherding two applications through the intellectual property disclosure process at the University of Texas at Arlington, so that the applications could be officially released as open source.

Terry Reese presenting. Over the past 1/2 year, Oregon State University (OSU) Libraries have been actively developing a hybrid federated search service called LibraryFind. We believe that our approach is unique in a number of ways (knowledge-base management, caching, OpenURL integration). OSU believes LibraryFind has something to contribute to the library community, and I’d like to show attendees what LibraryFind is, some things we learned through usability studies and how they can get the...

In this presentation I will cover why the protocol was created, how it is being developed, and how to build out and exercise a simple APP application.

Dan Chudnov presenting. What if we could share our libraries like we can share music in iTunes? Maybe we can. Maybe a little ZeroConf and OpenSearch added to existing library systems like metasearch and service resolvers can help make it happen faster, easier, and cheaper than you might think. Or two of those, at least.

The Rails-powered BibApp is the ultimate mashup of article databases, citation management software, and digital repositories. To date, it's helped us add over 2000 articles to our repository by organizing citations, identifying articles we can archive, and generating DSpace import packages. It also lets us analyze research produced on campus, illustrating popular research topics, departmental affiliations, and...

How to add value to data from one source with relevant data from another, and how do you orchestrate that interaction in a scalable way? A review and practical demonstration of augmentation APIs and their orchestration in a way that would make those used to Unix Pipes principles, feel at home.

Fabien Tiburce, Peter Giansante presenting. Various (discrete and disparate) library systems have experimented with incorporating community-contributed content. Yet, as we are seeing, few systems, if any can gather a sufficient volume of contributed data to achieve critical mass and have a meaningfully presence in the OPAC. However, if this content was aggregated across jurisdictions (using a small footprint web-service model and centralized database), libraries could play a central role in the...

We then launched full speed ahead into the development of a new OPAC from scratch using XML technologies and MARCXML. This...

I've been doing a lot of work around extracting as much meaning as possible from Marc records, using RDF as the data structure. Marc is a record-centric format, the result is anything but, with the RDF allowing rich relationships to form in the data that can then be used to drive different navigation techniques. This is about making the most of what is in Marc data to do something new.
